> Tedward, you start:

Duke:

"Best backourt on the planet" is only slight hyperbole.  The bigs are
no slouches -- not stellar, but you have to guard them honest, so the
guards and combo player Singler are free to wreck havoc.  When Irving
gets over the freshman idot turnovers, he'll arguably be the best guard
in the country.  Nolan Smith is one of the most consistent, dependable
scorers we've ever had.  Singler has been cold, so our offense is only
going to get better.  Curry's all-around game is impressive -- five
steals and a block last night.  Dawkins is quiet but efficient.  Bench
rider Thorton would start on many teams.

You could see the frustration of Kansas State last night on offense.
They shot horribly, and that game I normally think is much closer, but
this Duke defense is on par with historical Duke defenses.  The offense
is a potential jauggernaut.  I say potential because a cold shooting
night with the Plumlees disappearing could result in only 70 points or
so.

Inexperience and wildly inconsistent post play will cost us a few games.
Come March this team will be the odds on favorite but could easily lose
to any hot team.

UNC:

No, Harrison Barnes is not the immediate impact player on the same
level as Irving.  He may be by the end of the season though.  UNC will
be a force come March if Zeller doesn't break again.  Right now UNC is
obviously very beatable.  Their post play is lacking beefcake even if
they are competent scoring, point guard is an issue, and Barnes can
jack up 12 bricks as easily as 20 points.

Lots of talent, but not gelling as a team yet.

NCSU:

Yes, the three big frosh recruits will probably get them to the NCAAs
and save Lowe's ass from being fired.  Still, the youth thing is an
issue.  The wins over Tennessee Tech and George Mason were not very
impressive, and Georgetown kicked your ass.   Not ready for prime time
yet.  To save Lowe's ass, you need to to get a win against Wisconsin,
Syracuse, or Arizona.  Otherwise you're a bubble team that's popped.

I see NCSU losing in the ACC semifinals to UNC in a close game.

Wake:

You suck.  You really, really suck.  Really.

With a lot of hard work and improvement, Wake might could beat Miami,
UVA, or GT at home.  But then, they all suck too.  This is a down year
for the ACC.

You betchya!  I'm taking my high speed camera to the next game.
We've got a cheerleader that reminds me of Sarah Palin.
